If your computer gets stuck on an Apple logo with a spinning gear, there are several steps you can take. Your best bet is to follow the steps in the following article:

Note that this will likely require the startup discs that came with your computer. If you do not have them, contact Apple at 1-800-MY-APPLE to order replacements.

How do i unfreeze my macbook air?


Hi there, Firstly you are going to want to force quit whatever is not responding on your computer by pressing command + alt + esc.
If that doesn't work try turning off your computer forcefully by holding down the off button and then turning it back on. If you have tried all of these methods and your computer is still not responding a suggest that you take it to apple to have it checked out.

I have a Mac desktop. I was looking at photos from a disk. I cannot get the disk out because one of the pics is locked on my screen. When I click on the red dot I get a multi colored circle in stea


If your mac is completely locked up and only if it doesn't respond to any keyboard commands, then as a last resort, hold down the power button until the computer powers down.

Now, turn the Mac back on by pressing the power button. After you hear the startup chime, hold down the mouse button. This will tell the computer to eject the disc from the CDs drive. The computer should then start up normally.

Please write back if this suggestion worked. Good luck.

Frozen email on a mac


Using Force Quit Force Quit is the Mac's common way of telling an iced application "I've had it; I'm not going to take it anymore!" Choose Mac menu --> Force Quit or press Command+Option+Esc. A window appears, and you can click the name of the deviant application (not responding probably appears next to its name). With Force Quit, you typically don't have to reboot your computer.
Because you will lose any unsaved changes, Apple throws up a little admonition before allowing you to Force Quit. Alas, you may have no choice.
Dealing with a program that quits on you Sometimes, for unknown reasons, a program keels over. You could reopen the app and hope that this was a one-time aberration caused by mischievous space aliens. Or, you might have a chronic ailment on your hands.
When programs suddenly drop, you may see dialog boxes with the word unexpectedly, like the ones shown in Figure 1. The box on the left appears the first time you experience this issue; the box at the right shows what happens if the problem persists. If so, you may want to click Try Again to safely relaunch the fussy program. OS X restores the application's default settings (thus setting aside newer preferences settings), in case something you did caused the snafu.
>

Figure 1: When an application unexpectedly quits . . . and quits again.
Assuming that everything went swell from there, you'll be given the option of keeping the new settings upon quitting the program. Your old preferences are saved in a file with a .saved extension, in case you ever want to go back. If that is the case, move the newer and current preferences file from its present location and remove the .saved extension from the older file.
If the problem continues, it may be time to visit the library. (No, not that kind of library.) A Preferences folder lives inside your Library folder, which in turn resides in your Home folder.
These preferences files have the .plistsuffix and typically begin with com.followed by the name of the program, as in com.microsoft.Word.plist. Try dragging a .plist file with the name of the troubled application out to the desktop. If the program runs smoothly, trash the corrupted preferences file.
Forcing a restart Force Quit usually rescues you from a minor problem, but it's not effective all the time. If that's the situation you're in now, you'll likely have to reboot. The assumption here is that your frozen computer won't permit you to start over in a conventional way by choosing Mac menu --> Restart.
Instead, try holding down the power button for several seconds or press Control+Command and then the power button. If all else fails, pull the plug (or remove the battery from a laptop), though only as a last resort.

How do you reset power management on the ibook g3


For most situations, a restart is sufficient. If the computer has stopped responding, try these steps, in order, until the computer responds:
  1. Force Quit (Option-Command-Escape)
  2. Restart (Control-Command-Power)
  3. Force Shut Down (press the power button for 10 seconds)
Only perform a PMU reset on the computer if none of the above steps resolved the situation.

Can not get the mac pro osx 10 5 8 to start with the utility disk or with regular start up my on pilot lite keeps blinking


Put the Mac install disk back in. Try pressing command-option-escape to force quit. If nothing happens, then press command-control-power to force a restart. If that doesn't work, press and hold the power button for five seconds or so until the computer shuts down. Power up the computer again, and hold the option key so you can select the instal disc for startup. Run Disk Utility again. Sometimes you get a tangled file reference that requires several tries to undo - this could be calling the sleep routine instead of what it's supposed to do.

I have a problem with my 21.5in imac it is stuck on a grey screen with spinning wheel


Hold down Command+Option+Escape to bring up the Force Quit Application menu. One or more of your programs will likely have a '(Not Responding)' beside them. Select that application and click Force Quit, it will ask you for confirmation but go ahead. Then turn off your computer. Hit the power button to turn it on and immediately hold down Command+Option+P+R until you hear the tone happen twice. Log in normally and try to open that application again.
